FACT CHECK: Obama skims over some Afghan realities. Doesn't mention 'victory' in speech. VIDEO- What did Obama and Biden think of Bush troop increase?

Can more U.S. troops in Afghanistan really convert Afghans into an effective fighting force? Will allies answer the call to do more? Is Pakistan truly prepared to take on the extremists who pose the greatest threat?

President Barack Obama said yes in his speech Tuesday laying out his plan to pour 30,000 more troops into the Afghan war, then begin pulling out in 18 months.

The prospects, though, at least judging by recent history, are mixed.

A look at some of his claims and how they compare with the reality on the ground: READ MORE...

Reason 4,298 we despise liberals. Listen to Biden and Obama; idiots, hypocrites and total morons. This video is just more evidence of that.

NOTE ABOUT WEST POINT SPEECH- Can this annoying con artist of a President please expand his vocabulary? 'The status quo is unsustainable! Derisive, Dismissive, Insidious, Incredulous.' Dude, 'shut up already.' Someone please yank the plug on that teleprompter so he can go back to being the 'real' Obama. The 'stuttering' Marxist 'community organizer' who doesn't like America or it's history.

Google 'The status quo is unsustainable Obama' and look how many times he says it. Israel, health care, Afghanistan, Israeli-Palestinian, the economy, the environment.

The reason we call Obama supporters 'idiots' is because they actually think this guy is a genius because he uses 'played out' phrases, when they can't see that Obama is conning the shit out of them. They should feel like idiots for not paying attention to WHAT he is saying instead of HOW he says it.

A U.S. Army cadet reads a book entitled "Kill Bin Laden" as he waits with other cadets for U.S. President Barack Obama to deliver an address on U.S. policy and the war in Afghanistan at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York December 1, 2009.

Obama doesn't mention 'victory' in speech.
